  • Star witness in Cianci corruption trial dies

    PROVIDENCE (AP) — A star witness in the corruption trial of former Providence Mayor Buddy Cianci has died.

    David Ead died Saturday, according to the Pontarelli-Marino Funeral Home. It did not disclose the cause of death. He was 72.

    Ead was the former vice chairman of the Board of Tax Assessment Review.

    He spent a week on the stand during the 2002 trial portraying Providence City Hall as a place where favors were regularly handed out for bribes. He himself admitted to taking bribes to lower tax bills, and was sentenced to a year of home confinement.

    Prosecutors said at the time that Ead’s cooperation was essential to making a case against members of the Cianci administration.

    Cianci was convicted of racketeering conspiracy.
